john kerry was not the right guy to play mitt romney, anything like that? >> no, because, you know, i don't know how you can say that, because in a way, mitt romney and john kerry are very formal people, they are obviously well educated people with a kind of refinement about them, they aren't sloppy in any way, obnoxious in any way, they use firm language but both basically strong people, in the accomplishment, it was probably a very good pick but the romney that came in last night i would say you were right a couple of minutes ago, that romney was not predictable, he came in so strong and so in charge that he basically took over the room and i felt he was sufficient on that stage meaning the president didn't need to be on there for romney to put on the show or jim lehrer, it was romney control of that space and physical control of that space which was so dominant, i don't think we have seen anything like it before. >> rose:. >> in probably a presidential debate. >> rose: i also heard this was not a new romney in the context of have i seen him before. >> yes, mike barnicle saw him i

it's a striking analogy but guess what, john kerry lost by the same amount he was trailing before that debate. so that gets to the question whether debates really have, whether they really matter that much. and i went back and looked at every debate and every poll before and after since 1960, and the only candidate who gained substantially from debates, jerry ford who blew the biggest debate night of his career. so i'm skeptical, particularly with a rather small group of persuadeables, even though mike murphy may be right i'm skeptical this is really going to change the playing field a lot. >> rose: mike murphy, how would you convince him. >> i think what happens now is romney has a huge opportunity because what happened tonight is not really a static thing, it's part of a dynamic process. so now, obama will fight off the process stories for a while. there's new interest in romney. they saw a guy tonight that a lot of the country would see romney through the filter of advertising saying wait a minute this is an interesting guy. the romney campai is going to have to harness that m

and with massachusetts senator john kerry, who is playing mitt romney in mock debates. mitt romney and john kerry know each other well. they're both longtime politicians from massachusetts. so kerry knows romney's politics. and the reason, of course, that the obama campaign is working so hard to tamp down expectations, norah and charlie, is that they like the trajectory of the race right now. they don't want to do anything to change it. >> no doubt. thank you. both sides are trying to lower expectations for the debate because any misstep has the potential to derail a campaign. both candidates have both good and bad moments from their debate history. >> john, you're absolutely right that presidents have to be prudent in what they say, but coming from you, in the past, have threatened extinction for north korea and sang songs about bombing iran. i don't know how credible that is. >> he's very likable. i agree with that. i don't think i'm that bad. >> you're likable enough, hillary.

in no way to suddenly became tea party people in '09 or they voted for john kerry in 04 or al gore in 2000. i don't really think so much on -- it's just sort of not a thing i am looking at quite so much this time. and to me it's more where you see enormously talented candidates and fairly talented and okay and some that are not very good and how their campaigns are and whether they are catching on. for examples to places that surprised me our hawaii. i think former governor the republican nominee there, i think she is a terrific candidate. i think she is run a great campaign. i think she has done everything right and it doesn't seem to be happening. that surprises me. maybe it does and conversely in connecticut with linda mcmahon, you know my read early on was she spent $70 million in the best republican year since 1994 and loses badly. i didn't think she was going to have much of a chance. she is now running ahead. she is a better candidate and has run a better campaign. she has god a democratic opponent who has turned out to be far more problematic and has some issues that a lot of those

was debating with, john kerry because as they say he wants to be secretary of state. he's not going to get in the president's face. presidents are used to deference. they are not used to people challenging them like that. they i had the big prep was terrible but they fault the president himself for not understanding that romney was going to be more aggressive. >> how could they underestimate that? >> this is about the president's, i'm told, real preference, to try to remain low key. and that's something that his advisers couldn't change. >> so what are they going to do now? we heard david axelrod say that they are going to change some things, even suggesting that mitt romney is a liar for what he said in the debate. how are they going change things in. >> they will ramp it up. they have to figure out a way as these people say for the president to bring it in the next debate without appearing unpresidential. but here's the thing. they are worried about next week's debate between ryan and biden. they are afraid the 54-year-old ryan is going make the 69-year-old biden look kind of out of touc
